Welcome!

I can't make out the insects in the top picture, they could be aphids but their outline is too indistinct. Can you try getting a sharper picture, maybe remove the leaf and set it somewhere there is no breeze. Placing it on white paper may help the camera focus. It looks like scale insects in the second picture.
